Firey and introverted, Esra’s life has been turned upside down. Her father is now disabled after a recent motorcycle accident. At a new school, she tells a lie to avoid her shame and surprisingly it results in supportive attention. Unfortunately she is unable to anticipate the negative consequences of her actions.

Advisory: deals with internalized shame (disability and lying)
